Gohmert: Next Speaker Will Be ‘More Conservative’ Than Boehner

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” Saturday to react to Speaker of the House John Boehner’s announced resignation set for the end of October.

“First of all, I awoke this morning, I said my prayers and I said, Thank you, Lord,” Gohmert said of his reaction Saturday morning.

The congressman from Texas stated that under Boehner there has been a “dictatorship” and a more conservative Speaker will actually listen to the majority.

“I think that you will see a – no matter who the Speaker is, and I’m supporting Dan Webster of Florida, I know they’ll be more conservative because they will let the majority rule and that’s the way it’s supposed to work,” he said. “We have had a dictatorship for years now and we saw that with the funding of the Homeland Security, which funded amnesty. You had 167 Republicans vote against it; 75 vote for it, which tells you way over two-thirds have not been listened to by this Speaker.”
